    well, I haven;'t seen all of the shows, but from what I have see, I have liked, it isn't anything like must see tv, but it isn't complete garbage either, so I give it a preliminary 6 1/2 still early on, so am not going to lock it in yet.

    There will be 2 old star trek captains appearing in this show as IMDB shows.
    I wont spoil the names.

    Right now we can say it looks better then Discovery but so far we have not seen any episodes of the Star Trek Discovery as these 2 that are out are like a movie of the main characters past and today we see the STD first episode that could be named as pilot to. As the two episode past story had nothing to do with the discovery story.

    I will watch both but so far ii really like this Orville.
    Only optimistic future tv show we have right now that is story per episode and not full season or series.
    Now all we are missing is Q from Star Trek. I always loved Q in ST series cause the actor who played him did the best job for it and would fit very well to Orville to.

    This show needs it's own sub forum or is it to soon to make ?
    Somehow i dont see that this show gets canceled, especially as the names that will appear in this show and how much this feels like ST series and how much old ST fans like this more over Discovery.
    sorry about my lack of language skills as it is not my daily language and have learned it by my self as not from any help of others or a school

    Gotta say I loved the 6th episode: "The Krill". A "how to" for making a convincing alien prosthetic yet keeping the actors able to perform.

    This show is a stroke of genius.
    It's more "Star Trek" then Trek itself is these days, and it's timed perfectly to satisfy the demand of a lot of Trek fans who can't or don't want to buy a subscription to CBS's streaming service, as well as a gadget to attach to their TV so you can watch it.

    HDMI cables come with most DVD players...as long as you have a real laptop though. I am enjoying Orville for what it is. I really liked this week's episode. So far it is my favorite.

    Oh, I can connect a laptop to the TV via HDMI, but why can't they just publish an app that I can install on the TV? Too cheap to make a deal with the TV OEM? Whatever, I don't care.

    And then there is the cost of a subscription to a service to get access to one show. I might subscribe eventually. But not right now.

    I think it depends on your TV, the newer ones should work like apps on a handheld device. Some devices can also transmit the image via the TV itself or the DVD player wirelessly. But yeah, it is a bit of a hassle.

    Nah, the FAQ's on CBS's site say they don't have any apps. for smart TV's. Gotta buy either a Google or Amazon dongle to plug into the TV's USB port or watch it on a gadget or laptop.

    I'm really enjoying this show. I love the comedy aspect which generally has me laughing out loud multiple times per episode, but I am also seeing them build on characters and villains which gives me hope for the future of the show. Assuming ratings are good enough for renewal.

    The Cancel Bear Has The Orville as likely to be renewed.

    You know, while I find this show entertaining I really don't find it all that hilarious. It hasn't made me laugh. *Is sadtood*

    Maybe the joke is that it's more Star Trek than Star Trek is these days. But I agree, I'm not getting a lot of laughs out of it either. But that's ok. I like it all the same.

    I've been getting a bunch of "smiles" from some parts of the episodes so far shown.

    Yeah, the gags are hit and miss for me too. But some laughs are better than none.
